Chief Mrs Sade Okoya has bagged the Inspiring Executive Woman of the Year award at the University of Ibadan Alumni Global Network Dinner hosted in celebration of the 70th anniversary of the University of Ibadan. The event took place at Dorchester Park Lane, London.
Sade Okoya was accompanied by her husband, the Aare of Lagos, Chief Rasaq Okoya, and also their children. Also present at the event was the Emir of Kano, Sanusi Lamido Sanusi.
In a recent interview, Sade Okoya disclosed a part of herself which people do not know about her.
”Perhaps, many don’t know that despite being fashionable, I am a Laywoman when I get to the factory. When I go out, people see me as a celebrity. They need to see me when I am at the factory. You know, sometimes in life, we don’t get to choose what we want to be. Though, I am not complaining. I love what I am doing and that alone is fulfilling for me. Some people will ask me, why do you manufacture? Why don’t you do other things that are less stressful? But I tell them, I love what I am doing and it makes my husband happy. This is me and it’s my priority,” she said.
